Health courses and degrees

We know more about health now than at any time in human history — but progress never stops. That’s why we offer courses in the exciting and groundbreaking field of health science.

In our health science degrees you will examine the physical, psychological and social aspects of health. You’ll develop practical skills through clinical placements alongside study undertaken in our own MRI and MEG labs on campus. 

Whether you are pursuing a career in public health, community development, biomed, neuroscience and more — it’s all here at Swinburne.
